2nd March 2021

Dear Parents/carers,

We hope that this letter finds you and your families well. I would like to start by saying ‘thank you’ once again for how well you have coped during our latest lockdown. We really do appreciate how you have kept the children safe and helped with their home learning during these testing times.

As by now you will be aware, as part of the first step in the Government’s ‘road map to recovery’, they have announced the full opening of schools. This will mean that it is once again mandatory for all children to attend school unless they are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) and have been advised to stay at home. Therefore, we are really happy to announce that from Monday 8th March school will reopen to all our children once again. (Blossoms children to return on Tuesday 9th March).

There will still be government guidelines that we will be required to follow but these predominantly will be the same as those that were in place when all the children returned in September. We will continue to operate the same policies, practices and routines as we successfully followed during the Autumn Term - staggered start and end times to the school day for different Year Groups; staggered break and lunch times; learning in bubbles; strict hygiene measures.

To ensure that large groups do not congregate on the school grounds please see how the table below affects your child:

The KS1 Hall will be made available from 8.30am onwards, for parents with more than one child starting at different times. If required, siblings can be dropped off, and will be supervised at a socially acceptable distance from any children not in their class. This will solve the problem of parents having to wait around for long periods of time. However, it will be safer for parents to adhere to the start times as closely as possible. Similarly, the Hall will be available at the end of the day from 2.30pm, for children to wait for siblings to be collected who finish at a later time.

Breakfast Club will still be available from 8.00am – 8.30am and normal dinner service will resume.

When you are collecting or dropping off children from school, we would ask that you continue to follow social distancing rules and encourage you to wear a face covering in areas where many people are gathered.

We understand that children may have grown out of their school uniform over the last few months and due to the pandemic, some parents may have been furloughed or been made redundant.  This potentially will have put increased financial pressures on families.  We are sympathetic to this and as such there will not be an expectation for children to wear a uniform containing the school logo. We are aware that Asda supply an affordable school uniform range - Black Trouser for £6 pack of 2, Girls skirts pack of 2 £7, Pinafores £5, Polo shirts pack of 5 £6, Blue Sweatshirts pack of 2 £4.  Failing that, all we ask is that parents do their very best to send their child to school in appropriate clothing that mirrors the school colours. However, if any family is having difficulty, please do contact school and speak to a member of staff at any time.

All of the above measures are being taken to ensure the safest possible environment for your child. We will of course work very hard to continue to provide a happy, comforting and secure environment to limit any anxiety and fears you or your child may be having.

Thank you for your cooperation, understanding and support at this time. If you do have any questions or concerns, please can I ask that you try and contact your child’s class teacher via ClassDojo in the first instance.

Please take very good care and stay safe and we really look forward to seeing the children back in school.

 

Yours sincerely,

Andrew Fowler

Head teacher
